Christmas Gifts for Babies and Toddlers

Christmas gifts for kids are a national pursuit in many western countries during the holiday season. It is all too familiar to hear of families spending upwards of 5% of their annual income on gifts during the holiday season. Many families allot a budget in order to curb spending, but inevitably the majority falls short, overspending mostly on toys and other white elephants.

Many websites suggest gift ideas for kids. One way to ensure a working budget is with the aid of lists. The first step is to create a couple of lists by scouting for potential gift ideas for kids – one for babies and the other for toddlers. Next, build a list of recipients and the count of items their way. Once the two lists are established, in a few iterations, purchases can be balanced without exceeding the budget.

Below is a list of Christmas gift ideas suitable for babies’ up to two years of age:

Cloud b Sound Machine Soother, Sleep Sheep, Eight Sounds$60The stuffed plush toy comes from the award winning Sleep, Sheep and Friends theme at Cloud b. The toy has eight Soothing Sounds: Mother's Heartbeat/Twinkle-Twinkle, Rain/Rockabye Baby, Surf/Classical Lullaby, and Whale Song/Tranquil Melody that automatically times out after 23 or 45 minutes. Ideal as a sleep companion, during traveling, and in unfamiliar environments.
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether by Vulli$18.50Since its introduction in 1961, the popular product has gone on to be the ultimate teething toy. It is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint and is designed to stimulate multiple baby senses – contrasting spots for visual, squeaker for hearing, and aids for touch and smell sensations.
Razbaby RaZberry Teether$5Another teether toy that is much cheaper. We recommend going for the single-colored version rather than the multicolored ones as there is a minor risk of small pieces coming off and causing a choking hazard.
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes$87 classical melodies with colorful dancing lights across the screen. Promotes auditory development and music appreciation.
Lamaze Jacques the Peacock$11.82Plush toy peacock design with soft velour body, peek-a-boo mirror and squeaker. Included link can be used for hanging from other toys such as an activity gym or play mat.
Baby Einstein Bendy Ball$6.15An innovative rattle toy made of soft flexible plastic with a rattle ball inside which makes sounds as it is rolled.
Manhattan Toy Winkel$11.23A maze of safe, soft, continuous tubes for teething babies to chew on.
Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Soothe & Glow Seahorse$12.19Similar to the traditional glowworm toy, this plush toy glows, plays soft music and soothing sounds of the ocean for 5 minutes.
